The Neglected Effect of colors in healthcare sector
While hospital garments can have a significant impact on the psychological wellbeing of patients, they can also have a similar effect on healthcare workers. One way that hospital garments can have an impact on doctors, nurses and other healthcare workers is through the dopamine effect. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter in the brain that is associated with feelings of pleasure and reward. When we experience something that we perceive as positive, such as receiving a compliment or eating a delicious meal, our brain releases dopamine, which makes us feel good. The dopamine effect can also apply to the people who wear these garments every day, and this can have important implications for their work performance and job satisfaction.
Mentioned below are some of the benefits of using ARA healthcare apparel in your nursing home, clinic, or a hospital:
Providing a psychological boost- When healthcare workers wear garments that they feel good in, it can trigger the release of dopamine in their brains, leading to a positive mood and a greater sense of confidence. This can be especially important in high-stress environments like hospitals, where workers may be dealing with challenging situations and long hours and that is where ARA wants to play a part and bring about a change in the way our healthcare workers dress for work.
Improve the physical comfort of healthcare workers- Traditional hospital garments can be ill-fitting, restrictive, and uncomfortable, which can lead to aches and pains over time. ARA healthcare apparel is designed to be more comfortable and breathable making life a bit easier for healthcare warriors.
Highly motivated and engaged workers - Workers who feel good about themselves, and their work environment are likely to be more engaged and motivated, leading to better outcomes for patients.
Increase Job Satisfaction - Comfortable and attractive hospital garments can help to improve job satisfaction and retention rates among healthcare workers. When workers feel valued and supported by their employers, they are more likely to remain in their positions and provide high-quality care over the long term.
By providing healthcare workers with ARA healthcare apparel that are both comfortable and attractive, hospitals can help to improve the overall quality of care.
At ARA, we are on a mission to design garments that are comfortable, attractive, and breathable, helping hospitals create a more positive and supportive work environment for everyone involved in the care process. We understand that the effect of colors and comfort has been neglected over the years but it’s high time we turn it around and offer what our healthcare workers deserve.
